`Pride and Prejudice'
Lesbian and political activist, Ailbhe Smith was the Grand Marshal of the largest Pride Parade to date in Dublin. Dublin Pride is one of many parades taking place world-wide to commemorate the 40th anniversary Stonewall Riots of New York 1969.
Pride 2009 was the biggest held in Dublin to date with up to 12,000 people taking part. Ailbhe Smith was this years Grand Marshal - the first lesbian to do so in 26 years. She led off with whip in hand, saving it for the Government. The streets were thronged as passers by smiled, photographed and cheered. It's an incredible day when people can take to the streets and celebrate sexuality and diversity.
The groups included Siptu, the ever regular INTO banner, hikers, bikers, bellydancers, ruggerbuggers, head wreckers, genderfuckers, hopefullers, students, bubble blowers, crossdressers, transgenders, soldiers, sailors but alas no candlestick makers. It was all a fabulous display of colour and assertiveness- as the old saying goes 'We're here, we're queer and we're not going shopping'.
